Graston Technique is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. A session includes assessment, treatment, stretching, reassessment, and exercise. The instruments amplify the feel of soft tissue restrictions, such as trigger points and fibrosis, and are effective to correct these conditions. Graston Technique practitioners are trained professionals who maintain their credentials as the knowledge base is updated.
